In order to meet the growing need for cardiovascular services in the region and provide the highest level of care, RTA was retained to develop a solution that would expand the existing Non-Invasive Cardiac suite and a add a new Cardiology Nuclear Imaging Suite. To accommodate the expansion, the hospital’s main registration pre-admission testing and gift shop were strategically relocated, re-envisioned, and re-branded.
RTA conducted on-site meetings with the cardiology staff throughout the design process to gather information on their needs and requirements. These meetings ensured that the final design creates a more cohesive Cardiology Departmental Suite from the perspective of both staff and patients.
Outpatients coming in for Cardiology, Nuclear Imaging, or Lab services will enjoy a new shared waiting area equipped with new furniture and dining areas. Major signage in the lobby will be updated to improve wayfinding. Security will be moved to a larger work area adjacent to the lobby, and the Chaplain office will be relocated to be more conveniently located next to the chapel.
